The “Officer Friendly” Police Fantasy

Police in Tempe, Arizona, announced plans in July for a “positive ticketing” campaign to pull over drivers who had violated no traffic laws. A Phoenix TV station reported that the police would give the people they targeted free soft-drink coupons for Circle K as a reward for their “good driving behavior.” Police in other areas have run similar programs in recent years but the TV news report on Tempe’s plan spurred a torrent of testy Tweets:

“Keep your hands on the wheel and don’t make any sudden moves while you are being rewarded, it could cost you your life.”

“We gunned him down…. well, he refused to stop for his coupon. Self defense. Case dismissed.”

“Um, WHAT?!? They better not stop me for driving legally cause that’s illegal! #harassment”

“What if you don’t stop?”

“Cops to profile for illegal immigrants under the guise of campaign to promote good driving.”

“There goes probable cause right out the window. Police state 101.”

“I would get a panic attack. My reward for driving well is not dying. That’s all I want.”

“Unless it’s a ruse to illegally search your vehicles. And if they notice anything out of line during the mock pullover you’ll be arrested.”

“What’s next? Are they going to start walking into people’s houses to congratulate them for not breaking the law?”

One commenter suggested he could be fined for “resisting a coupon” for free drinks.

A few months before its “positive ticketing campaign” announcement, Tempe police were harshly criticized after one of their officers shot a 14-year-old boy in the back, killing him as he was running away while holding a replica airsoft pistol. An Arizona ACLU employee summarized the situation on Twitter:

“Tempe cops: the community doesn’t trust us after we shot and killed an unarmed teen (sic) what do we do

Community: stop killing us

Tempe cops: FREE THIRSTBUSTERS AND UNREASONABLE STOPS”

The Tempe Police Department responded to the uproar by issuing a statement stating that they never intended to pull over motorists without good cause. Instead, the free-coupon program would be targeted to pedestrians, bicyclists, and skateboarders. But the furious reaction of people across the nation signaled the profound distrust of police….Read More

 

 

Thank You for What Service? By Laurence M. Vance November 11, 2019


MFP Commentary:

“Thanks for the article Vance

FWIW I have been physically attacked twice in this small MO town for not being thankful enough for their service, and spoke my mind. Many of the troops IMHO are dangerous psychopaths after their service and are not fit to be in civil society. The police in both cases would do nothing because of course not showing enough respect to the war criminals makes me the bad guy. And they are encouraging this criminal behavior in the “troops” by not prosecuting them. (most of the cops are war criminal vets also)

For one they have pissed all over the Constitution that requires a declaration of war. They fight any and all wars of aggression which happen to be war crimes. They use weapons with indiscriminate killing potential (agent orange, nuking or fire bombing  entire cities, and of course depleted uranium) which is also a war crime.  How about adding in the War of Northern Aggression (where the Feds murdered many members of my family) and  the  kidnapping of Japanese  ancestry US citizens and putting them into concentration camps in CA? (My neighbors met in one of these concentration camps known as camp “No No”.)

Thank YOU for your service to liberty Vance.
Regards”

Veterans Day should be renamed.

It happened once before. Veterans Day was originally termed Armistice Day. It commemorated the signing of the armistice on November 11 that ended fighting on the Western Front in World War I. But because the “war to end all wars” didn’t, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day after World War II. President Eisenhower signed the legislation making the change on June 1, 1954.

Since the first U.S. invasion of Iraq in 1991, and especially since the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq after 9/11, Veterans Day has taken on a new meaning: Military Appreciation Day. Although there are other national holidays (Memorial Day and the Fourth of July) that have degenerated into Military Appreciation Days, Veterans Day is the ultimate day to celebrate all things military.

On Veterans Day, veterans and active duty military personnel can take advantage of special discounts at many places of business and free meals at restaurants. Many cities have parades in honor of the military. Both public and private schools have programs featuring local veterans and military personnel.

Churches have “patriotic” services on the Sunday before Veterans Day where veterans and active duty military are encouraged to wear their uniforms to church, military anthems are played, the names of veterans are listed in the church bulletin, veterans are recognized and applauded during the Sunday morning church service, the church sign has the Scripture on it replaced with something about the military, and more prayers than usual are offered for “the troops.” Some churches show a video tribute to the troops, have a military color guard march down the main aisle to open the service, or have a military chaplain as the guest preacher.

But above all, everyone in the country is bombarded with exhortations to find a veteran and say: “Thank you for your service.”

Service in the military is called being in the service. But what “service” are we supposed to thank a veteran for? How did a veteran serve me or any other American by being in the military?

I can see the point of thanking a waiter or waitress for their service because they actually served me, but the same is not true of a veteran of the U.S. military. Those in the military do many things, but serving me or any other American is not one of them….Read More

How Property Taxes Will Take Millions of Homes In the Next Administration on Behalf of the NWO


MFP Commentary: 
The Satanic plan to bring in the NWO and to kill  all Christians, is known as the Communist Manifesto (1) and has as it’s first plank, that people will not be allowed to own land (such as a property tax).
This plan to murder God’s people is supported  (or at least not opposed) in almost every “Christian church” in this country! Has Christianity  become a suicidal mental disorder?

As I have stated many times  before,  if we had a functioning milita in this country we would have at least some defense against this tyranny.  This is exactly the kind of  thing that the second amendment, and the militia were there to protect us from.

Boulder County Sheriff’s Office sued after video shows inmate being tasered while strapped down


MFP Commentary:

This is how Blue ISIS acts in your town.  (I know from over 50 years of experience with them)The  so called “Christians” in the churches seem to support this evil without reservation. Christity IMHO has become a mental disorder that does  not know the difference between right and wrong.

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

When things like this happen to someone 99.9% of the time they can do nothing to seek justice because “modern christians”  seem to be perfectly fine with the government created monopoly of the legal “BAR” that most people can never ever afford.  In my personal life in dozens of crimes committed against me by the state I have not had the funds to hire one of the monopolists (lawyers)  even once to help me seek justice…..not once.  The FACT of the matter is that for the common person there is ZERO access to any form of justice or the legal system and it’s going to reach a head sooner or later.
FWIW the “milita” used to be our protection against such tyranny.  No longer.  Americans are stupid enough to have let it die on the vine.

BOULDER, Colo. — The Boulder County sheriff and five deputies are named in an excessive force lawsuit after an inmate was tasered even though she was already in a restraint chair with her hands strapped behind her back and her head covered with a spit hood.

Lauren Gotthelf filed the federal lawsuit Tuesday morning for an incident that occurred Nov. 25, 2017.

The 34-year-old was ticketed by a Boulder police officer for smoking on the Pearl Street Mall and allowing her service dog to be off-leash. When Gotthelf refused to sign the summons, she was taken to the Boulder County Jail.

Once at the jail, Sgt. Chris Reiss can be heard on body cam footage telling Gotthelf, “Based on your suicide statements, you’re going on suicide watch.”

Gotthelf is heard denying she made any suicidal statements but there is no body cam that recorded what she may have said moments earlier, only the interaction between her and deputies that followed.

“You guys are nuts,” is what Gotthelf is heard saying to deputies when told she has to strip and put on a suicide smock. At one point, Gotthelf told deputies that she should be taken to a hospital if they believed she was a suicide risk.

“You’re not going to a hospital, you’re going on a suicide protocol,” Reiss responded.

Suicide protocol often means placing the inmate in isolation with a smock so he or she cannot harm themself….Read More

 

A Michigan Man Underpaid His Property Taxes By $8.41. The County Seized His Property, Sold It—and Kept the Profits.


MFP Commentary:
Isn’t this exactly what the 2nd amendment, and the milita is all about? I doubt this would have happened if we had a fully functioning milita. Instead we have Blue ISIS that instead of protecting our rights is one of the main violators of our God given rights.

A state law allows counties to effectively steal homes over unpaid taxes and keep the excess revenue for their own budgets.

| 

A Michigan Man Underpaid His Property Taxes By $8.41. The County Seized His Property, Sold It—and Kept the Profits.

An 83-year-old retired engineer in Michigan underpaid his property taxes by $8.41. In response, Oakland County seized his property, auctioned it off to settle the debt, and pocketed nearly $24,500 in excess revenue from the sale.

Under Michigan law, it was all legal. And hardly uncommon.

Uri Rafaeli, who lost his property and all the equity associated with it, is just one of thousands of people to be victimized by Michigan’s uniquely aggressive property tax statute. The law, passed in 1999 in an attempt to accelerate the rehabilitation of abandoned properties, empowers county treasurers to act as debt collectors. In the process, it creates a perverse incentive by allowing treasurers’ offices to retain excess revenue raised by seizing and selling properties with delinquent taxes—even when the amount owed is miniscule, and even when the homes aren’t abandoned or blighted at all. …Read More

Poison your Mitochondria with Pharmaceuticals


MFP Commentary: 
As you may well know at the Fordland Clinic, pharmaceuticals  are the answer to every possible condition that you may have. Despite the FACT that none of them cure anything, have very serious side effects, and that  you must take them forever!  Ask about a way to actually cure your condition, and not just  cover up the symptoms with drugs, and they look like deer in the headlights as they say “I don’t know”.

Poison your Mitochondria with Pharmaceuticals

We poison our mitochondria with drugs we buy over the counter or get by prescription as a matter of routine. Our doctors, medical organizations and governmental organizations believe they are doing us a favor poisoning people with dangerous drugs and complain bitterly when we self-administer safe ones like medical marijuana and sodium bicarbonate. Most medical studies are ridiculously wrong and seriously misleading. It is a fact that all studies are biased and flawed in their own unique ways and have led to the creation of a form of medicine that just does not work at all to cure people of their diseases.

My 77 year old mother is in Florida. In April she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and had one breast removed in addition to a few lymph nodes. She finished Chemo and was about to finally start radiation 2 days ago and was told she now has bone cancer. The doctor who is treating her said he used your book on his father and it worked miracles. Now my 81 year old father is obsessed with your book Sodium Bicarbonate – Rich Man Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment. My father has asked me to get him your book, and I’m happy to do so.

In Medical Express we read of their surprise that tetracycline-based antibiotics have an unexpected effect on the development of many organisms. Unexpected? It is no secret that most drugs are mitochondrial poisons. The Medical Express essay points out that not only are doctors poisoning us but that these antibiotics are widely administrated to livestock and that there are serious issues of soil pollution by these antibiotics. In 2011, 5.6 million kg of tetracycline was administered to US livestock. A study showed that nearly half of the 210 kg of antibiotics produced in China in 2007 were tetracyclines for veterinary use….Read More

Prenatal Ultrasound—Not So Sound After All


MFP Commentary:
I don’t know if the ultrasound is used at the Fordland Clinic,  but I assume it is.   Like anything else the Feds push or approved on Sonia Cass at the clinic is more than eager to push a Federal Mandate regardless of its health consequences for you or your child.   Here is more of the story:

… a single exposure to ultrasound produced cellular and DNA damage similar to 250 chest x rays—and damage was permanent and heritable for ten generations and beyond.

Prenatal Ultrasound—Not So Sound After All

By the Children’s Health Defense Team

 

Prenatal ultrasound is a taken-for-granted component of modern maternity care, to such an extent that most obstetrician-gynecologists find it impossible to practice their profession without it. American women now routinely undergo four to five ultrasounds per pregnancy. Despite the absence of demonstrated benefits, there is also a trend toward “new applications of ultrasound…at earlier stages in pregnancy” (p. 47), including Doppler fetal heart rate monitoring that magnifies the unborn baby’s exposure manyfold.

A Scottish physician developed the first 2D ultrasound machine in the late 1950s. Intended for prenatal scanning as well as gynecological tumor diagnosis, the machine drew on the doctor’s prior experience with military radar technology. Now, the latest growth sector in ultrasound technology is 3D imaging (which shows the baby’s face) or 4D ultrasound that creates a “live video effect, like a movie”—luring parents into stockpiling “keepsake” footage of their baby’s in utero facial expressions.

While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tells prospective parents that ultrasound exams provide “a valuable opportunity to view and hear the heartbeat of the fetus, bond with the unborn baby, and capture images to share with family and friends”—and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) denies any association between ultrasound and adverse maternal, fetal or neonatal outcomes—not everyone shares the agencies’ complacency. In fact, two recent books make the opposite case. One author—backed up by over 1500 scientific citations—argues that prenatal ultrasound is so harmful to children that it “should be banned from obstetrics immediately.” The other contends that the “subtle and not-so-subtle” biological effects of ultrasound “have set the human species on a tragic path” from which it may take generations to recover.

It’s official: “Blue ISIS” at gunpoint steals more from Americans than the regular “thieves”


MFP Commentary:
It can no longer be denied.  The thugs in blue costumes (Blue ISIS) outright steal at gunpoint more than the other criminals that we throw the book at.   We pay the salaries of these criminals.  Do you ever think that these thugs will be charged with crimes like they should be?   Just like the “drug warrior” cops should be?

When they can take your children away… how free are you?

George Reby was driving from New Jersey to Tennessee to pick up a car he had purchased on eBay when he was stopped for speeding.

Like many Americans, George felt he had nothing to hide from the police. So when the officer asked him if he was carrying any large amounts of cash, he admitted he had $22,000 on him because he was buying a car.

George was able to show the officer his eBay bids, and that the sale was legitimate. He was able to demonstrate that he has income from his job as an insurance adjuster.

But none of that mattered. The cop seized George’s money on the spot.

Later, in a court hearing that George was not allowed to participate in, the judge allowed the police to keep the money even though George was never charged with a crime…..Read More

700+ American Doctors Given Over $1M Each From Big Pharma To Push Drugs & Medical Devices


Nurse Sonia Cass

MFP Commentary:
At the Fordland Medical Clinic  they get their kickbacks in the form of actual cash in exchange for mindlessly pushing “Federal Health Mandates” that upon closer inspection look like thinly veiled Nazi eugenics.   How about the “mandate” to force full mouth dental x rays on patients with a family history of brain cancer?  How about criminally disarming ( 1)  patients creating a  gun free “killing zone” at the facility?   Sonia Cass is one of the lead non thinking group thinkers there.  Search for her name here on MFP to learn more about her.  If she could get big pharma kickbacks for pushing deadly chemo on you I think that she would be all too  happy to comply.  She already pushes vaccines that are full of cancer virus’s on the patients in order to please her God, the Federal Health Care mandates.
IF you dare speak out about your concerns,  she will have you banned from using any resources at the facility including denying the poor and elderly  dental care because the clinic is the only sliding scale clinic in the area.  She may look benign, but hers is the face of evil.  Satan as you know can appear as an angel of light….

700+ American Doctors Given Over $1M Each From Big Pharma To Push Drugs & Medical Devices

In a very thorough and revealing analysis of statistical industry payment data, ProPublica disclosed that more than 2,500 physicians have received at least half a million dollars apiece from drugmakers and medical device companies in the past five years alone, while more than 700 of those doctors received at least $1 million, and that doesn’t include money for research or royalties from inventions.

In their article, the authors note that their previous analysis in 2013, which found out that 1 doctor had made $1 million and 21 doctors had made over $500,000 for the same reasons, was expected to be a wake-up call for more effective scrutiny, oversight, and challenges to these payments. Instead, these types of payments have become much more commonplace….Read More
